A car hit a pedestrian Tuesday in Federal Way.

The 83-year-old woman was hit about 1:45 p.m. in the 31200 block of Pacific Highway South.

She was taken to Harborview Medical Center with serious injuries, Federal Way police spokeswoman Cathy Schrock said.

She was in a crosswalk, but it’s not clear if she had the right of way, Schrock said.

The driver, a woman in her late 80s, stayed at the scene, and was interviewed and released.

Schrock said there was no reason to think drugs or alcohol were involved.

Further information was not immediately available.
